HiOffer – a new beginning?

Comment 1 Standard

Hello everyone!

I am sorry that it has been two months since my last post – life has not been good to me. I have been trying to stay focused on my current job to save the funds I need to go abroad and teach. However, while I was on Facebook one day I saw an advert of an online teaching platform – HiOffer. It is very exciting as I can set my own hourly rate.

You may have noticed that I have also added some “services” to my Facebook page – [add link]. These services are not just for people who do not speak English as their first language, but also for any student who wishes to improve their spoken and written English.

Writing a Wicked Covering Letter…

Comments 2 Standard

Hey everyone; I have found a few jobs that I want to apply for on the Jobs Board. However; they are all requiring a covering letter – I have done covering letters for my current job but I have never really written one for a TEFL position. Does anyone have any tips or tricks for me?

I have a lot of experience of working with people and I know that this is one of the many qualities that the schools that are in need of TEFL teachers want.

Do you think that I should have a generic covering letter and change the name of the “school/company” each time I send it or should I make each letter personal to the School/company?

I want to make it personal for each school/company but when that be truly productive when it comes to applying for TEFL jobs? I have also registered on other TEFL Job Boards that are scattered all over the internet.

IC Bilbao has been one of the places I have been very interested in going to in Spain. I ‘follow’ them on most of the Social Media platforms and I feel that I would fit with all the other members of staff. They have not requested a covering letter; just my CV – which before writing this post I sent my CV to them via their website.
